About this Event

Venue: Department of Computer Science and Technology, University of Cambridge

Date: 1 April 2020, 9:30 - 16:30

This new symposium, hosted by the Raspberry Pi Foundation and the University of Cambridge, is for all academics, researchers, students, and teachers who share an interest in computing education research. It's an opportunity for researchers and educators to share their work, meet others with similar interests, and build collaborative projects and networks.

The theme of the symposium is school-level computing education (both formal and non-formal). The day will include a range of talks and a poster session.

We are pleased to welcome Dr Natalie Rusk as our keynote speaker. Natalie is a Research Scientist at the MIT Media Laboratory and one of the creators of the Scratch programming language .
